1 Month and 6 days left
until our celebration.

The 2017 Guy Family Reunion
is Dedicated to all the Deceased Guy Family Members
who Served in the Military from the
Civil War to the Wars in 
Iraq and Afghanistan
Remembering Those That Gave All


Here's a Civil War photo of my 3rd great-grandfather BALDY GUY (1841-1911) & his brother, GEORGE GUY (1845-1928) my 3rd great-grand-uncle.

The photo was taken by a cousin who was visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. where a video on the Civil War was playing.

 Bearing The Load

As a bear ventures through unknown territory, he is marking the way for many others to follow.  Because he took steps in a different direction, a new path was created for future bears who will use that same trail for generations, placing their feet in the exact same spot every time they walk the course. Their adventurous vision has created a remarkable path that will be traveled for years to come.

Thanks to our Guy Family Ancestors for being Trailblazers !!!
